Tips & Tricks|Setup GMail [POP] On Windows Mobile

Setting up GMail POP on Windows Mobile is really easy.
--
1st on your desktop login to your GMail account and make sure that POP Forwarding is enabled. You may find this under Settings > Forwarding and POP/IMAP
nb: if you have a fairly large inbox it would take a lot of time if you do decide to download all your messages.

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
